Getting Started

Accela API is a REST-based API that empowers agencies, partners, and developers to build civic engagement apps that extend and customize Civic Platform solutions. Using the Accela API, developers can build innovative apps that bring core government functions such as permit applications, licensing, land and asset management within the citizens’ easy reach. These apps create efficiencies for agency staff and increase engagement between citizens and government.
